Villanova University's "Nova Nation" shirt is one of the key traditions of the Nova fan base for students and fans to wear with pride. Designed in conjunction with Student Life, the Student Government Association, the Basketball Club, and Athletics, the shirts form an intimidating force in the stands at any Villanova sporting event.

Navy blue on both sides, the front of the shirt features the Wildcats "V" logo and the reverse side has the patented "Nova Nation" graphic that is an indispensable part of the Villanova culture. Fans can purchase the shirts at many outlets including the Athletics Store at games,, the University Shop,, and other sales centers during special campus promotions.

Villanova has experienced a great deal of success with its fan t-shirts over the decades. The current shirt is especially appealing as it can be worn not just at Athletic events. All incoming freshmen and transfers receive the shirts as part of their orientation package to really instill this tradition in all Villanovans.

Community is a core value at Villanova University, which was founded in 1842 by the Augustinian Order of Catholic Priests. Within the University seal are the Latin words "Veritas, Unitas, Caritas," with "Unitas" standing for unity. The goal is to unite Villanova Fans, Students, and Alumni through this unique Villanova t-shirt program. Wear it and be a part of the nation!
